On the tiptoes of time, between antiquity and the early Middle Ages, stand the Visigothic Versals alphabet. It’s the exclusive, distinctive, and independent lettering tradition unique to 7th-11th c. Spain. Manuscript spacing constraints created letters of different sizes, stacked, ligatured, and highly unique! Gain and/or increase calligraphic skills, the Visigothic Versals alphabet, ligatures and how/where to use them, and steps to creating finished work.
